    Default Which of the following goes best with a linen suit?

    Greetings all, been away for a while due to some health problems but I am happily recovering nicely and returning to my hobby.

    I have a date this evening, first in a while and the temperature is heating up where I'm at so it's the perfect opportunity to wear a nice linen suit for the evening. Which of the following would you pick to go with a khaki linen suit for an evening spent mostly outdoors?

    Bvlgari Pour Homme Extreme
    Hugh Parsons (Blue Bottle)
    TdH
    Guerlain Vetiver
    Bvlgari Aqua
    Chanel Allure Pour Homme Edition Blanche

    Sadly due to the current climate I can no longer wear my winter favorites, because let's be honest: Antaeus in 80 plus weather and high humidity is just mean.

    Thoughts?

    Glad to hear you are feeling better.

    I personally would go with Guerlain Vetiver or Bulgari Aqua.

    Good luck and have a great time tonight!

    Given the above choices and a linen suit, I'd say either Guerlain Vetiver or the Edition Blanche. If the event itself is more formal then definitely the Vetiver.

    Have fun.

    I smelled Parsons last night and don't know why it doesn't get more play on this site. Solid choice there, or the Edition Blanche.

    Helmut Lang EDC.

    I mentioned this yesterday, but I would unquestionably recommend it as a fit.

    Also, Jo Malone, Lime, Basil & Mandarin cologne.

    I'll second this, perhaps a little too late.

    Defintely Bulgari Pour Homme extreme. Very fresh and light green tea with woods. Perfect!

    Thanks for the advice, I was going to wear Guerlain Vetiver but for some reason I ended up putting it down and grabbing Hugh Parsons instead. Seemed to work for the best, I agree that Vetiver IS more classy but Parsons has more of a dynamic drydown which kept my nose entertained, and the woman I was with said I smelled good so it worked for me lol.
